Qpid Auth Providers Test

Authentication Providers are used by Ports to authenticate connections. In order to successfully establish a connection to the Broker, the connection must be authenticated. The Broker supports a number of different authentication schemes, each with its own "authentication provider". Any number of Authentication Providers can be configured on the Broker at the same time. This test reports the current state of the authentication providers that establishes a stable connection with the broker.

Target of the test : Apache Qpid Java Broker

Agent deploying the test : An internal/remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for each Authentication Provider: Authentication in the target Apache Qpid Java Broker.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test period

How often should the test be executed.


The IP address of the target server that is being monitored.


The port number through which the Apache Qpid Java Broker communicates. The default port is 8080.


By default, the eG agent executes REST APIs on the target component to collect the required metrics. For the eG agent to execute the REST APIs, a user with monitoring privilege is required. Specify the name of such a user in this text box.
